Why Choose the Cremation Society

The Cremation Society of New Hampshire specializes in just one thing: simple cremation. Our purpose is to provide the public with an alternative to the complicated and costly funeral system which is common in America today. We carry out your wishes simply, very affordably and with dignity.

We are able to keep our prices affordable year after year since most people opt to become a member and make their arrangements using our website or through the U.S. Mail. We realize that there are times when families prefer to meet with us in person. That’s why we have options available for in-person meetings in one of our offices or at your home ($295) during business hours.

High funeral and cemetery costs, changing family demographics and varying religious beliefs are just a few of the many reasons why most people choose to be cremated. Not only is cremation considered a more environmentally friendly option, it also allows for a wide range of personally meaningful options for the final disposition of our remains, such as cemetery interment, burial on private property, scattering at sea or kept at home.

As you will read, more people are choosing the Cremation Society over local funeral homes for the reasons outlined above, as well as countless others. By providing affordable pricing, as well as an array of value-added services and safeguards, we help lessen the burden – both financial and emotional – that is placed upon surviving family members at a most difficult time.

We Own Our Own Crematory
Most funeral establishments do not operate the facilities where the cremation takes place. In those cases, the cremation is contracted out to a third party provider, which means the establishment has little control over the crematory’s processes. We own our cremation equipment, which means your loved one never leaves our care. Our highly-trained and certified personnel perform all cremations following our 10-Step Peace of Mind Cremation Process. Our equipment meets or exceeds every state and local operating requirement and standard.


Green Cremation
The Cremation Society of New Hampshire strives to be as earth friendly as possible. We have clean-burning propane retorts and purchase carbon offsets for our greenhouse gas emissions. We are also paperless and use local vendors whenever possible. We encourage families to make arrangements online instead of driving to our offices, which also reduces our carbon footprint.
